I can’t take any credit for the idea for this scheme of work, this came from Mark Clarkson who has a very similar topic on his site.
This scheme of work aims to teach learners how to plan and carry out a project while applying a variety of IT skills, such as 3D modelling, spreadsheet modelling and presentation skills. Learners will plan their project by using a Gantt chart, design a house using Google SketchUp, calculate the expenditures of the project using Excel then produce a presentation to explain why their house should be built. The topic finishes with an evaluation of the work produced.
